A hearing this afternoon in Sangamon County Circuit Court could determine whether a reporter should turn over information in the ongoing Springfield Police IA File Shred FOIA case.
Calvin Christian and his attorneys will be in front of Judge John Behlz this afternoon.
Attorneys for the City of Springfield are asking Christian to turn over phone and email records and also disclose the nature of his work with Pure News USA.
Christian has said he will not turn over his sources due to reporter privilege.
The city recently filed a response in the case saying that Christian and his attorneys knew the files were going to be shred and filed a FOIA in hopes of getting a payout.
